A gun collector asked me to produce rustic display cases for his 9 shot .22 caliber revolver and a 4 shot .22 caliber derringer. He provided the materials but didn’t know the species. The revolver case may be wormy chestnut. The derringer case may be ash. Both backs are of ash. The guns are held in place with recessed 1/2 inch diameter rare earth magnets in sockets. Dowels prevent the guns from slipping down on the magnets. The frame fronts are held on with recessed 3/8 diameter rare earth magnets in sockets that grab the corresponding recessed round srike plates.
